Duty to document 2017 /// Spot Gallery, Zagreb, Croatia

The material I work with is debris. In our part of the world, certain ideas have been removed and quashed after big socio-political changes. One might say that they were eliminated by other facts and events, and replaced by new values, systems and meanings. These works illustrate a conflict between personal memory and political history. These photos, slides and objects illustrate fragments of a possible world. These scale-models are here to allow us to take the position of a thinker, of a maker; a phenomenological step backwards for a better understanding of things. At this point they are simple, accessible and mobile; they evoke a combination of work and play. This is a strategy for a demonumentalisation of ideas and systems.
